Local Area

Padstow is arguably now one of the best-known of Cornwall's holiday destinations - a working harbour still retaining the character of the fishing industry while also managing to reinvent itself as a modern holiday destination. Padstow has so much to offer the discerning holiday maker, with several beaches along the Camel Estuary, where you can also have a go at a range of water sports such as sailing and windsurfing, as well as a variety of boat trips such as fishing excursions, speedboat rides, sea-life safaris and the ever popular Jubilee Queen. You can indulge your passion for food at an excellent selection of restaurants in the town, which is now the base for a number of celebrity chefs including Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth.  If you're looking for more active pursuits, you can cycle the Camel Trail, the route of the old railway line running between Padstow and Bodmin.  If walking is more your thing, there are many walking trails and routes waiting to be discovered, and if you're bringing a dog, there are plenty of dog-friendly places to explore. Gaining popularity in recent years is the Padstow Christmas Festival, now spread over four days, with cookery demonstrations, food and craft market, and entertainment.


The property was lovely and it was especially nice to find tea and biscuits waiting for us on arrival and to receive a card from the owners part way through our week. Mrs J Seeley - 31st August 2017

Had a super week in Padstow, we were so lucky with the weather. Some good walks, Constantine Bay well worth a visit. Rick Stein's fish and chips are lovely, Cherry Trees cafe is so nice for breakfast, coffee & cake etc - really friendly people.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Samphire House. The lovely decoration, well stocked kitchen and beautiful garden really made us feel at home.

What a wonderful place for a little R&R. You gave thought to everything, the interior is absolutely stunning and the garden is lovely for the afternoon. We hope to make a Samphire holiday an annual event and are sad to leave and have to wear shoes!Mrs R - 25th June 2016
